I’ve somehow managed to make the ugliest, yummiest drink that I have ever tasted. I was set to blend up a green monster this morning. I ended up making more of a brown monster than anything green. It probably won’t be made again on St. Patrick’s Day, but I might have to drink it daily between now and then. I think a certain Chocolate-Covered girl would be proud! Behold..
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brown Monster:
- 3 oz. frozen chopped spinach
- 3 oz. frozen strawberries
- 1 Tbsp cocoa (or my new favorite.. shown below!)
- pinch of xanthan gum
- pinch of guar gum
- 1/2 serving protein powder (I used Syntrax Strawberry Mousse)
- Stevia and lots of water to desired consistency and sweetness
It made a giant blender bottle + 1 full glass of smoothie all for a grand total of 103 calories, 0 g fat, 14 g carbs and 15 g protein! That one full glass had my tummy bursting.
I used a new find
I LOVE this stuff, despite the fact that it turns a pretty green drink brown. I have been a dark chocolate fiend for years and this satisfies my cravings. Forget the milk chocolate. I need dark, delicious decadence!
I have plans this afternoon to whip up a recipe, with a few minor adaptations. Stay tuned!
